Convenient
The main reason to stay here is the convenience if you are driving - free parking, easy access to the motorway and best still a frequent tram right outside the door that takes you in 10-15mins to the edges of the Aldstadt and the main shopping areas to save you having to negotiate the town (you get a free pass for trams/buses from the hotel). WiFi fine and free. Breakfast good. Rooms fairly basic and surprisingly lacking in air conditioning which will likely increasingly become a problem for them (it was 34c when we were there and they had left a fairly pointless fan in the room).
